GPS Shoes


"

… After uploading your required destination to the shoes via a piece of custom made mapping software and a USB cable, the GPS, which is embedded in the heal, is activated by a heal click. It then communicates to the wearer via a ring of LED lights to point in the required direction. The shoe with the GPS wirelessly communicates with the right shoe that has a progress bar of lights to show how close you are to the destination.

Interesting concept. This could generate much higher positive interest if they could do away with the LEDs on the shoe. Say, some sort of haptic response to indicate direction and distance as opposed disco shoes.

Another suggestion - Why not have the option to upload destination co-ordinates wirelessly? Just a thought.

NO... let the disco-lights stay... please. There should be a ring of lights around the shoe... in red, green, blue, amber and purple. And the shoe should make some squeaky noises to alert the wearer about turns... long squeak for a right turn, 2 short squeaks for left. Also, when the shoe detects a crowd around you... it should beep / or blow a small horn for the human traffic to clear. :D
And... they should be steel tipped! ;)

When they launch that... I promise I'll get you a pair! :D
